The Punta Cana Diaries: A Slice of Paradise


Raisins Swimwear Macrame Bikini c/o Swimsuit Direct (similar), White Drop Shift Dress c/o LuLu*s (similar, similar), Don Fisher Whale Bag via Jeremy, Vintage Green Silk Scarf c/o Style by Portobello (similar)

And now back to my Punta Cana adventures (well, if you count doing nothing but lying around like a bum adventures). One of my favorite parts of being down in the Dominican Republic was the view itself. There's something so magical about seeing water so blue and palm trees so tall. While the beaches weren't as "clean" as other resorts (online reviews made such a fuss about it for some reason), we personally enjoyed all of the seaweed lying around, being true to the way the beaches should be.

Taking these photos was a bit of a struggle when it came to the unforgiving beach winds blowing my bangs every which way, hence the very few shots of my face. I have no clue how those bikini models manage to look like they're not eating fistfuls of their own hair. They have got to have figured out a way to control the wind with some giant machine or maybe they're just immune due to some genetic wind-defying power. Where can I get me some of that, plz?

  2. Thanks for that comment on natural beaches being awesome. I grew up in Florida and it's so sad to see all the natural foliage and shelly sand get replaced by fake stuff. It's pretty, but it's not real.

  4. I hear that swimwear models take their photos during the cooler months and so I don't have any idea how they do that! I love your bag and your photos definitely do not show the struggle to take such amazing shots!

  7. Wind is the worst for photos -- and I do not have great wind hair either. I have no idea how models do it.

    Anyway, love that super cute whale bag, and that macrame bikini has such a pretty back!

  13. Beautiful photos! You look amazing! It's always such a pain when it's super windy but you seem to have managed really well! (or I guess didn't include the hair eating pictures that you mentioned hehe) xx

  14. Your whimsy in your photos is so adorable! I think supermodels have wind machines and an entire team to make sure their hair looks perfectly disheveled on these types of shoots.

  16. Jen, great pictures. You can tell you are having so much fun! When you can you definitely check out this new funky store called Valfre. Their site is http://valfre.com. Take a look at them and let me know what you think. They are a little edgy but I think you might like the styles.
